The CMTO Comms Team recently caught up with Tariro Kupura, 2020 Graduate of the CMTO’s Certificate III in Screen & Media course. 

Since completing the studies with us Tariro was eager to begin paid work in the community media sector.  

We heard she landed a role at 2RPH, Sydney’s Radio Reading Service, a vital community broadcaster that reads newspapers and magazines for the benefit of those who have difficulties reading for themselves. 

The CMTO team caught up with Tariro to hear more, 

CMTO:  Tell us about your new role?

TARIRO: I’m currently working as the Content Manager at 2RPH in Glebe in a part time capacity as I still run my own cuddle therapy business & host a radio show at 2RRR Gladesville

CMTO: What were you doing before you started paid work in community radio? 

TARIRO: Prior to paid work in community radio I was running my own part time, cuddle (touch) therapy business called Cuddle Connection AU in 2020, which allowed me to work around my disability. I stopped working as a Finance Manager back in 2018 due to health reasons related to having multiple sclerosis. 

CMTO: What was the most valued skill that you achieved during the course?

TARIRO: Understanding the importance of planning, scripting and cue sheets was pretty valuable for program planning and execution. 

CMTO: What advice do you have for future students who want to get paid work? 

TARIRO: Be open to putting yourself forward for a range of paid roles where you can identify and sell your own transferable skills
